Gene: RPS18 (ribosomal protein S18) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RPS18
Name: ribosomal protein S18
Description: Exhibits RNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including SRP-dependent cotranslational protein targeting to membrane; nuclear-transcribed mRNA catabolic process, nonsense-mediated decay; and translational initiation. Localizes to cytosolic small ribosomal subunit; nucleus; and postsynaptic density.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
